Fucidin H Cream is a topical medication used to treat infected skin conditions, particularly those with inflammation, like eczema. It's a dual-action treatment containing two active ingredients:

  • Hydrocortisone: A steroid that reduces inflammation, redness, itching, and swelling.
  • Fusidic acid: An antibiotic that kills bacteria causing the infection.

✅ Who can use it?

  • Anyone, including children and elderly, as advised by your doctor.
  • Always follow your doctor's instructions for using Fucidin H Cream.

❌ Who cannot use Fucidin H Cream?

  • If you are allergic to fusidic acid or hydrocortisone
  • On fungal or viral skin infections
  • On open wounds or burns
  • For long periods without medical supervision

How to use Fucidin H Cream?

Fucidin H is prescribed for topical application (directly to the affected skin only, avoiding healthy skin). Applying it correctly is crucial for quick and effective results.

Before applying:

  • ✅ Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
  • ✅ Clean and dry the affected area gently. Avoid harsh scrubbing.

Apply a thin layer only on the affected area, twice daily, until the skin condition improves. Once symptoms subside, consider stopping treatment or switching to a less potent medicine.

❌ Don't use it for more than 2 weeks without talking to your doctor. If your condition hasn't improved within two weeks, seek their advice for the alternative treatment.

How does Fucidin H Cream work?

Eczema flare-ups break our skin's protection, allowing in bacteria that cause infection. 
Fucidin H Cream fights back with two powerful ingredients:

Hydrocortisone calms the sore skin and rebuilds the barrier, while Fusidic Acid works by stopping the bacteria growing and increasing in number. The bacteria then die or our immune system kills them.

This double-action combo soothes the symptoms and recovers the infection, but remember, it needs a doctor's prescription and only works for bacterial eczema.

What other skin problems can Fucidin H Cream help with besides eczema?

Fucidin H Cream is a prescription medication for dry skin conditions accompanied by secondary bacterial infections, such as atopic eczema and various types of dermatitis (irritant, allergic, or seborrheic).

The cream's antibiotic ingredient, fusidic acid, effectively targets these bacterial infections, making it a effective treatment option in these specific skin conditions.
